Three-dimensional Design *FEES PAYABLE* at Clifton College
The Three Dimensional Design syllabus at AS and A2 is concerned with the generation and development of product design ideas using appropriate observational, research and drawing skills and the practical realisation of product design concepts using workshop based skills and processes in woods, metals and plastics.
The Three Dimensional Design course at AS and A2 is for those who wish to continue their studies in the field of designing and making. It is available to students who have achieved at least a grade B in either Design Technology, Ceramics or Art.
The AS and A2 courses follow the Edexcel Art and Design – Three Dimensional Design: Product Design specifications 8TD01 and 9TD01 respectively.
These place considerable emphasis on investigative, experimental and creative practical work, allowing students to involve themselves in in-depth studies of designing and making in personal, contemporary and historical contexts and to build on the creative and practical skills that they began to develop at GCSE.
Prospective candidates should be aware that the course in Three-Dimensional Design does require a heavy and time consuming commitment to coursework.
